What Customers say about The Passionate Pearl Jewelry:

"I am thrilled with my lovely lever back freshwater pearl earrings! Given I could not see in person, the earrings I would be receiving, I was a little hesitant to order them. For me, I'm a bit of a stickler about pearls; they must be a perfect match in size, shape and color, but also the nacre also needs to have a natural richness to it. These earrings were absolutely gorgeous across the board! The lever backs are well made, making them neither too stiff or too flimsy to open and close. If I could, I'd given my earrings six stars!" (Dawn C.)

"I am so thrilled everytime I make a purchase from The PassionatePearl! Fast shipping, excellent customer service and BEAUTIFUL high quality jewelry at affordable pirces :-) Thank you! I also do bridal makeup and will suggest your products to the brides, there are so many styles that would look amazing for brides or even as bridal party gifts!" (Teresa Paquin at Anika Skincare and Makeup)

"These are beautiful earrings! I wore them for all my holiday functions this Christmas season and received many compliments. Not only are they beautiful, the craftsmanship is exemplary. I studied fine arts through a Master's level and I know quality and an artist's eye. These have both! Highly recommended!" (Elizabeth C.)

"Thank you Jeanne for making this pearl necklace for me to compliment the bracelet I previously purchased from your shop. The necklace is so beautiful (truly stunning blue colour that is so unique). It is now my favourite necklace :) Would highly recommend this seller - amazing work." (Michelle S. from UK)

"I purchased this as a gift for my future daughter in law and it looks beautiful on her. She loved it as well. The shipment of the product was very quick and Jeanne was very responsive and nice to work with. I would recommend the Passionate Pearl to any of my friends." (Dawn S. )

ThePassionatePearl's Shop Policies


Welcome to The Passionate Pearl,

If you are looking for a Unique Gift for that special someone you may just find it here. My work is handmade in my own studio with great attention paid to details, durability and functionality. Each Piece is made to order but I am very prompt at getting your order in the mail within 1- 3 business days.

When I see a beautiful Gemstone or Freshwater Pearl, my heart jumps! I love them combined with Sterling Silver and/or Gold. I Design simple pieces maybe just because I am from France and think you never get tired of simple designs. I use recycled Sterling Silver whenever available and recycle any of my scraps so nothing is wasted.

Freshwater Pearls and Gemstones are carefully Hand Picked, sometimes Rare Finds which can make Duplication Impossible (OOAK - One-Of-A-Kind). The time I spend looking for the Best Quality Products reflects in both my work and prices.

Additional Policies and FAQs


Most Sterling Silver designs can be made with 14K GOLD FILL if you prefer (if supplies are available)

14K GOLD FILL is the next best thing to 14K Gold! The layer of Gold is so thick, you'll never know it's not just Gold - Very Durable and More Affordable than Pure Gold. There is 100 times more Gold in 14K Gold fill (Rolled Gold) than in gold plate. A 14K Gold Filled piece is usually considered a lifetime piece of jewelry.

SPECIAL ORDERS and MULTIPLES ORDERS, please contact me with your Special Request. I have many Beautiful Color and Shape Pearls available. If these are in stock, you will not be charged extra (unless you are requiring a much Larger Pearl which might be more expensive)

I charge $10.00 extra if your required Design demands some supplies I do not have in stock.
